Get lost in the delicately illustrated watercolour foliage by Vikki Chu. But don’t let your guard down, there’s a host of creatures in there, and teeth and claws too!

Vikki’s work is rich with detail, filling her images with glorious flora and fun fauna. We really like her inky marks, but she’s just as good with a pencil or working digitally.

In the cheerfully colourful illustrations by Laura Callaghan, sumptuous patterns are placed edge to edge with one another. This creates a rich look thick with details to pour over.

The effortless inky marks and washes of bright colours make Brooklyn-based artist and designer Danielle Kroll’s illustrations charming and beautiful in their simplicity.

Danielle’s designs capture the best elements of sketchbook work in the final images. The quality of the brushstrokes, the whimsically wonky edges, the watery swathes of pinks and oranges, all help keep the immediacy and energy of the drawings.
